Trigger points are highly irritable spots in muscles which are formed when the muscle tissue is damaged at different points in our lives. When activated, trigger points can cause pain, limited range of motion, circulatory problems, nervous system problems and weak or fatigued muscles.
Trigger points become activated when undue stress, either physical or emotional, is present in our lives. When constantly activated these points can cause unrelenting chronic pain and lead to further health issues.

Several methods are used to relieve trigger points including trigger point therapy and soft tissue massage as well as stretching, cupping and dry needling.
In cupping, suction is used to draw skin and the superficial muscle layer into the cup – much like the inverse of massage.
Dry needling involves inserting a thin filament needle into the skin and muscle directly at the myofascial trigger point – the small contraction knot in the muscle.
Treatment typically includes the prescription of tailored exercise, massage, stretches, needling if required and the use of the foam rollers, spiky balls and resistance bands.
The Lymphatic System has a vitally important role in health maintenance. The lymphatic system is made up of nodes and vessels. The vessels transport, in the lymph fluid, products such as toxins, bacteria, dead cells, excess proteins, hormones and immunocompetent cells. The healthy functioning of the lymphatic system can be hindered, or stopped, due to factors such as stress, chemical overload, age, lack of activity or food additives.
We use TGA approved Practitioner-only candles as they are handmade locally in Melbourne and blessed before being shipped to us. They are, from our experience, the only candles that truly work. Candling is a very holistic treatment as it focuses on letting go of blockages within the body, both physically and emotionally. Commonly, candling is done on the ears to remove excess wax, but your practitioner may also suggest body candling depending on your concerns. Contact the team to find out more information and have a discussion to see which type of candling is best for you.
How is Ear Candling Done?
Candling is a very holistic treatment, it's about letting go of blockages within the body, blockages we can feel physically or emotionally that we may not realise are present. We hold onto a lot of stress in the abdominal area, when the body is ready to let go, the candles will allow that blockage to clear.
- Side lying position
- Candle is placed into a small cone and the cone is gently placed into the opening of the ear.
- 1 full length candle per ear (2 candles used during treatment) TGA approved and practitioner qualified only
- 60 minute consultation.
